(March 18, 2009) - Indiana's largest meeting of mathematicians and mathematics professionals will be hosted by the Department of Mathematical Sciences on the IUPUI campus March 20-21, 2009. Researchers and math educators from across the state will present talks on a range of topics, including biological modeling, inquiry-based, interactive mathematics and the intersection of mathematics, computer science and art.

Held at IUPUI for the first time, the spring meeting of the Indiana section of the Mathematical Association of America provides a forum for professors, teachers, students and anyone interested in mathematics to address the importance of mathematics education for our country's future, while sharing new approaches to unsolved problems and the most recent research related to math.

The meeting schedule also includes specific opportunities for mathematics students-an undergraduate competition on Friday and a Saturday workshop on Knot Theory. Nearly 50 college teams from across the state will compete in the math contest, including three teams from IUPUI. Competition results will be available before the end of the meeting on Saturday.

Registration for the two-day conference remains open. Visit www.ipfw.edu/math/INMAA for details.
